The breakdown of responses is as follows:

  • 54% of respondents considered the discharging of treated water as "problematic but unavoidable."

  • 29% of respondents found the discharge to be "reasonable."

  • When combined, 83% of respondents approved of the move.

  • Only 10% of respondents believed that the release must be stopped.



While the percentage of approval for the discharge, including those who considered it "reasonable" and "unavoidable," was approximately 80% across all age groups, there were some variations in the breakdown by age:

  • For those aged 18-29 and in their 30s, 40% considered it "reasonable."

  • In the 40s and 50s age group, 30% found it "reasonable."

  • For those aged 60 and older, only 20% considered it "reasonable."
